A Sb,Au,Ag mine

This mine is located at the first falls on Happy Thought Creek

It worked a flat-lying mineralized fault in andesite. It produced ore from 1938-1941.

Age: Pleistocene (0 - 2.588 Ma)

ID: 2836358
Glacial drift, undivided

Age: Pleistocene (0.0117 - 2.588 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Nespelem Silt; Salmon Springs Drift: Wingate Hills Drift; Hayden Creek Drift; Vashon Drift; Sumas Drift

Description: Glacial and glaciofluvial sand, gravel, and till; includes alpine glacier outwash and till as well as some Recent alluvium.

Comments: Nespelem silt (in part); Salmon Springs Stade: Wingate Hills Drift, Hayden Creek Drift; Vashon Drift (in part); Sumas Drift; Primarily located in northeast Washington with some deposits along the Skagit River and near Eatonville. The Hayden Creek and Wingate Hill Drifts are alpine glacial deposits. The drift in northeast Washington was deposited by the Cordilleran Ice Sheet in Late and pre-Late Wisconsin (Stoffel and others, 1991). Most deposits are gravel to fine-grained sand. Finer-grained material (silt and clay) is incidental.
